England lock Courtney Lawes is looking forward to pulling on an England jersey once again when Eddie Jones side take on South Africa at Twickenham on Saturday, live on Sky Sports. Lawes was an injury doubt for Englands opening autumn international after withdrawing from Northampton Saints matches against Montpellier and Gloucester last month due to bruising on the knee joint. England vs South Africa November 12, 2016, 2:00pm Live on Get Sky Sports Get a Sky Sports pass However, after proving his fitness Lawes is ready to resume his second-row partnership alongside Joe Launchbury. Ive not been very lucky with my injuries, especially last season, he told Sky Sports News HQ. I had three six-week injuries so I just wanted to stay fit for a significant amount of time; enough time to get my form back. Lawes has been sidelined by a series of injuries That was my main goal and Im certainly on my way. Im not there yet, but Im on my way to getting back to the sort of form that Im used to. Watch NOW TV Watch Sky Sports for just £6.99. No contract. Lawes also revealed that head coach Jones has been working with him to improve his ball carrying ahead of the Old Mutual Wealth series.I dropped off with my carrying. When I was younger I used to carry way more than I had the previous season, so Eddie was hot on me for my carrying and getting around the park and making a big impact, he said. Courtney Lawes has been urged to take his opportunity if selected to play against South Africa after recovering from a knee injury. Its a confidence thing. You get used to carrying and if you stop carrying, you get used to not carrying, so its about retraining your brain, getting used to patterns around the park and how you can get your hands on the ball. Wood stays as England cut nine Tom Wood is in line to make his England return after being retained in a 25-man squad Lawes Northampton team-mate Tom Wood is back in the England fold for the first time under Jones, having been told by the Australian in January that he was distinctly average. Tom Wood is back in the England fold for the first time in a year Its really good to see him back in the squad, added Lawes. Hes worked unbelievably hard in all facets of his game and Im really proud of him.Is Eddie testing him when he says things like that? Woody is not a distinctly average player, hes a very good player, and I think Eddie just wanted to see his character. Woody has shown him that and that is why hes back here now.

The move came as the team neared the end of its third consecutive last-place season in the NL East. WILLOWBROOK, Ill. -- With one out in the first inning of the National League Championship Series Game 5 on Thursday night, Gail Schuster shuffled to the end of her motorized wheelchair, sat up as straight as she possibly could and began yelling at the flat-screen television a few feet in front of her.Hurry up! Schuster beckoned. Oh hurry up! Please hurry up!Half a country away, Chicago Cubs leadoff man Dexter Fowler was attempting to score from first base on a double into the right-field corner by Anthony Rizzo. And the 75-year-old Schuster, confined to a wheelchair for more than a half-century due to a rare bone disease, couldnt watch quietly without begging Fowler home.Hurry! she kept repeating.As Fowler rounded third, a flip phone in the Cubs bag draped over the arm of Schusters wheelchair began to buzz. CALL FROM 2-0-7... Schuster ignored it, waiting until Fowler crossed the plate, Rizzo was safely at second and her beloved Cubs had a 1-0 first-inning lead to pick up.Hello? she said to a caller who probably should have known better. Im watching the game.It was a scene surely repeated in living rooms, hospital rooms and nursing homes around the country. Elderly Cubs fans, in the late innings of their lives, starting to believe what was once unthinkable: the Chicago Cubs playing in their first World Series since 1945.You always think its going to go the same way it always does -- they freeze up, Schuster said. A couple nights ago, thats what it looked like, very much timid and afraid. But now theyve come together.There were so many years they fell apart, I never thought it would happen, added David Baker, like Schuster a resident at Chateau Center in Chicagos southwest suburbs. But maybe this is the year.At 88 years old, Baker admits that his long-term memory is a far cry from what it once was, not entirely a bad thing for a lifelong Cubs fan. Baker says he doesnt remember the collapse of 69, the ground ball rolling through Leon Durhams legs in 1984 or the crushing Game 6 of the 2003 NLCS.Steve Bartman? Baker asks. I have no idea who that is.Schuster, on the other hand, remembers all the heartbreak. But she wouldnt have it any other way. The Cubs have always been there for her, so until the day she dies she will return the favor. A self-described die-hard, she has listened to or watched nearly every Cubs game since she was a teenager and health issues forced her to drop out of school in the seventh grade and confined her to a wheelchair at the age of 21. On her darkest, most depressed days, she would turn to Ernie Banks, Ron Santo and Billy Williams to lift her spirits.I fought that wheelchair the entire time. I didnt want it, she said. But every day I looked forward to the ballgame. My mom would get hot dogs, potato chips and a Coke and I would watch them and listen to Jack Brickhouse. It helped me get through a lot of hard days.No matter what was going on, the Cubs became a constant for me. They were always there. And as I became older it was a bridge to talk to people and meet people.Schuster made her first trip to Wrigley Field in 2007 and says she has been there about six times since. Today, Schuster has no surviving family. She was never able to have children and was an only child. But in the halls of Chateau Center she has built a reputation as the biggest of Cubs fans.Night games arent exactly easy for the elderly. As Thuursday nights Game 5 began, most of the other residents of Chateau Center were either in bed or on their way there.dddddddddddd Yet there was Schuster, in the nursing homes media room, barking at the TV with the passion of someone 50 years younger.Of course I stay up and watch, Shuster explained. I dont get up at 6 a.m. like a lot of these people do. I just sleep til 10.Ninety-year-old Bobby Clark quietly watched the first two innings with Schuster before fading and heading back to his room. He planned on reading about the game in Friday mornings newspaper. I read it every day, he said.Two other Cubs fans, Baker and 86-year-old Joe Zahradnik, hung around the media room for pregame but called it a night before Fowler had even scored in the first. Said Zahradnik: I can only watch day games. And Baker: Ill find out in the morning if we won.But there was Schuster, starting her night in the media room and ending it in her bedroom, glued to the Cubs game all the way until the final out. Through the course of the night, she revealed that Kris Bryant is cute and she admires Addison Russells baby face. He looks like its too late at night for him to be out, she said. In the NLCS, shes quickly grown a dislike for the Dodgers?Adrian Gonzalez. He just seems so nasty to me. When Gonzalez struck out to end the first inning and chirped to the umpire afterward, she made note. See what I mean? she said. Hes just so intimidating. You dont need to act that way. And she was less than pleased with L.A.s baserunners jumping off first base in an effort to distract Cubs left-hander Jon Lester. I cant believe the way they are acting, she said. Its so ignorant.Schuster believes this is the Cubs year because they are no longer led by aging veterans and instead have such a young, talented core. We used to always get players at the end when they were limping on the field, she said. I dont know why we would buy them. But this new guy, Theo [Epstein], hes done some great changes.Schusters bedroom features a Cubs blanket and she regularly drinks from a Cubs mug. Wrapped around her left wrist is a Cubs bracelet and strategically positioned on her nightstand are a pair of Cubs rings that she would prefer others dont touch. She insists she isnt superstitious, yet when she found out the daughter of another resident works in Guest Services at Wrigley Field, she gave the woman a miniature plush goat that said curse breaker on it to take to the ballpark during the division series against the Giants.It worked, she said. They won.But now comes the real test. Up 3-2 in the series and headed back to Wrigley Field, the Cubs stand at the same point they did 13 years earlier against the Florida Marlins. But this time, Schuster, Clark, Baker, Zahradnik and elderly Cubs fans all across Chicago believe the outcome will be different. They have no choice. Their time is running out. They need the Cubs to beat the Dodgers and go on to win the World Series this year.And when they do?A beer, Zahradnik said. A very good beer.I will probably order a pizza, Schuster said. That would be such a great way to celebrate. Spinach, mushrooms and black olives. Yum.Baker has other thoughts.Ill celebrate quietly, the 88-year-old said. At this age, I dont need to be loud.
